What plasma cutter/computer should I use?

Size the plasma cutter according to the material thickness you want to cut. You can mount virtually any hand-held plasma torch in the machine. However, it's best to use a cutter that incorporates contact start technology (as opposed to high frequency/high voltage start technology). Contact PlasmaCAM for compatibility information on specific plasma cutter models. Getting the right plasma cutter will save time and money in the long run. We highly recommend new Hypertherm brand plasma cutters for their overall performance. Refer to the requirements and recommendations given in the demo video packet before you buy a plasma cutter or computer.
